    Join 71.229.207.246:15151

    Very simply, I would like as many people as possible to hop onto my new server for a few minutes. I am trying to find out how many people it can realistically handle, given my bandwidth.

    Just plain vanilla right now to test, and the map is temporary - so - grief all you want!

    If you run into serious lag problems, or none at all, I would appreciate feedback here. Thanks everyone


    Edit - well, doesn't look like any interest right now, so I'll try some other means. Server offline now.

    posted a message on OptiFine HD (FPS Boost, Dynamic Lights, Shaders and much more)
    I'm not certain that it is a bug with the mod (which is really cool by the way!) but I wanted to mention this:
    Using Preview OptiFine HD A7 Smooth + AA for Minecraft 1.2.5, with extreme (the farthest) render distance, minecraft runs out of memory. That was not surprising (especially since I use a 256 px texture pack), so I doubled it to 2GB - still ran out of memory and it corrupted my world. I'm not too concerned, but I figure I might warn people if they plan to use the extreme render distance.

    I think quaternary is pretty cool (1, 2, 3, 4), since it can be used to represent DNA code.

    Personally, i think people really under estimate what standard computers can run these days. I was told my computer wouldn't be able to run any games, But i can run skyrim on high settings fine.

    But if you are gonna buy a computer on new egg, just build one. It will be useful for longer.


    Battlefield 3 is a different story :D (It is currently among the most graphics intensive games, and actually does require high end hardware)

    At OP: No, that computer cannot play Battlefield 3 at ultra settings. I get reasonable framerates with my Radeon HD 6970 on ultra, playing battlefield 3 at 1080p resolution (get framerates in the 30s to 50s), so I recommend a computer with at least a 7870 graphics card, based on the games you want to play.

    At the OP, I'm glad to hear it is working correctly for you now!
    At people arguing over disabling turbo boost - why? His temperatures are just fine now. Also, turbo boost only activates under safe thermal conditions in the first place :)

    Oh man, this is such a subjective matter. If I had to choose, either the NZXT Phantom 410, or the new Antec Eleven Hundred.

    If your hardware supports it, MSi Afterburner has an excellent screen record function. It offloads the work to the GPU so it records very high quality without a big hit to framerates. Also free.

    Reliability>Performance>Price

    You buy for reliability, then performance, and if you get what you pay for. The M4s from Crucial you do.

    True. I can't disagree with that.

    posted a message on Will you be upgrading to Ivy bridge?
    No, I have heard the same story confirmed by people who magically got production Ivy's early (eBay ftw). They don't overclock like Sandy Bridge, and the rate at which the heat increases with voltage (dJ/dV?) is greater.

    But, clock for clock, Ivy is a straight up improvement in every benchmark. As long as you aren't interested in a 5 GHz overclock, Ivy really is great.

    Hmm looks like I have been far out-voted lol. I have used the Crucial M4 as well, and they really are great, good price too. But, they are not as fast as a Vertex 3.

    Oh thanks! totally missed that!


    No problem!
    here is a more compact way to do the same thing:

    int x;
    for(x = 1; x < 10; ++x){
      System.out.println(x)
    }
    System.out.println(":P")


    I haven't done java in a long time, I think that syntax is right :P

    You set x=10, so all of the tests for x<10 are false (because x is not less than 10). Either set x = 9 or do x<=10

    Edit: Perhaps you meant to have x = 0 initially?

    posted a message on Good cheap 1000W PSU?
    If you are sure you need a high power PSU, take a look at the Antec High Current Gamer 900 W http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817371050
    I think it is overkill, but those are good PSU's at really a great price.

    Quicktime has excellent screen recording built in. The files it creates are huge, but the quality is delightful.

    ^ still kidding me right?

    Operating system, 100 bucks. i3 2120, 124 bucks, case 40 bucks, motherboard 60 bucks, ram 20-30 bucks, HDD 60 bucks, Optical drive 17 bucks and that is just est and not gonna happen.

    A AMD APU laptop is best choice you can go. Still searching for a good brand and deal on one.


    lol. Yep. That does add up to $431, although the numbers you listed are obviously best-case scenario prices, considering tax, shipping, stupid SATA cables, etc, it of course gets more expensive. But, the OP could potentially do that if he wanted.

    As a note, for only a couple dollars more you can get the i3-2125. It is the same as the 2120, but with Intel HD 3000 graphics; worth the upgrade in my opinion.
